Enough of Drowning

The Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers Beach, Florida, 2013

This is an excerpt from a poem I love by David Whyte: “The Truelove”

If you wanted
to drown you could, because finally
after all the struggle
and all these years
you simply don’t want to
anymore
you’ve simply had enough
of drowning
and you want to live and you
want to love and you will
walk across any territory
and any darkness
however fluid and however
dangerous to take the
one hand you know
belongs in yours.
                          –David Whyte
